  1. Beautiful...congrats!! ❤️
  2. We eat yogurt after surgery for the protein. I don’t know anything about the dairy ease tablets, but if they don’t affect the protein intake from the yogurt, then no. No worries!
  3. I hear that, @bumblebee41!! I used to feel twice my age, no more!! This surgery saved my life, and gave me possibilities I could have never imagined. We are all here to support you!!
  4. Welcome to Thinner Times!! I don’t have fibromyalgia, but I did have type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, severe arthritis in both knees, and a host of other health issues, before my gastric bypass in May 2017. I weighed 336 pounds on my first visit to my surgeon. It will be 3 years in May of 2020 since my surgery. My diabetes is in remission. I no longer have high blood pressure or high cholesterol. I also had sleep apnea, and that’s gone too. I was able to have two knee replacements last year because I lost so much weight, and I went from being wheelchair bound to being able to walk more than a mile at a time. I am down almost 200 pounds (after a small gain from prednisone just recently), and I can do everything a “normal” person can do. Energy is through the roof and the transformation is amazing. The weight loss will help you in more ways than you can imagine! We are so glad you’re here ❤️
  5. Happy Belated New Year, @Cheesehead! Not feeling too great just yet, but hoping to soon. Thanks for the sweet compliment! I hope your holidays were wonderful
  6. Thanks so much, @cinwa!! David is doing great He’s down to 180.8 now
  7. Thank you so much for your response, @msmarymac! I’ve been on prednisone a couple of times prior to this, but only for a 5 day course each time before this, and each time before this I’ve lost weight on it. I can see definite bloating, but it only appears to be in my stomach. Like I said, I did gain some weight over the holidays, but I know exactly why and I was ok with it. This last 5-6 pounds came on over the past 2 days, after already scaling back my diet. It really does suck having to start taking the meds right in the heels of the holidays, of course. It’s good to know that any gain caused from the meds themselves should go quickly As far as insomnia, I have been suffering with it for months, but the past 10 days have been so horrible. I’m going on 5 days with no sleep at all at night, and only short naps during the day. Thank you!!! I hope you’re doing well, and that your holidays were great!!
  8. I was put on prednisone a week ago Saturday for an upper respiratory infection/bronchitis. So it’s been 10 days today. I had gained a few pounds over the holidays, prior to getting sick, which I was ok with. As most of you know, I have been below where I wanted to be weight wise since the summer when I got sick and had the hernia surgery, etc. My comfort zone is 140-145. I had been maintaining at about 145 since Christmas. This morning, I weighed 150. Please tell me that this is normal with prednisone. I’m experiencing bloating, and I’ve put on an inch around my waist in these 10 days since I started the meds. Luckily I only have 2 more days and I’m done with the prednisone. I’ve gotten strict again with my diet since New Year’s Day, so I’m hoping this will resolve itself once the prednisone is out of my system. Anyone else with this kind of experience, please tell me this isn’t permanent!
  9. Thank you so much, @Res Ipsa ❤️ I hope you and your family enjoyed the holidays! How is Seamus? ❤️
  10. @Res Ipsa...happy holidays!! Thank you so much for asking, we have had so much going on we haven’t had time to check in. I’m so sorry! @PapaDavid is doing fantastic! I think he is around 180 now, but also losing inches like crazy. He’s doing so well, he’s off all of his high blood pressure, cholesterol meds and CPAP! We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on Christmas Eve :) I will post some pics for comparison. I believe I just came down with bronchitis, so I may FINALLY have time to check in!
  11. Amazing!!! Keep up the great work!!
